Daydream Island Resort & Living Reef is ideally located in the heart of Queensland’s Whitsundays Islands and the gateway to the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef. Following an extensive $140 million redevelopment in 2018-2019, our stylish and tranquil island resort offers a range of refurbished spacious and modern rooms and suites with stunning views overlooking the pool and garden landscapes or with ocean views.

There is an expanded food and beverage offering across the island with three restaurants and three bars including an exciting new Asian Fusion restaurant which joins the buffet and modern Australian restaurants.

The Living Reef is the main centrepiece of the island which is a unique free form coral lagoon wrapping 200m around the central building and holding over 1.5 million litres of water.  The Living Reef is home to over 100 species of marine fish, over 80 species of coral and a variety of invertebrates such as starfish, sea cucumbers and crabs. 

The Resort offers a revitalised pool landscape that sweeps through the tropical gardens across the resort allowing guests to swim and enjoy unparalleled views across the Whitsundays Great Barrier Reef along with unlimited access to a variety of non-motorised water activities.

Daydream Island Resort’s event space will cater to major events, conferences and destination weddings, yet still provide a personal touch. Special events from cocktail parties to gala dinners can be catered for across a large range of indoor and outdoor event locations, with weddings continuing to play a part in the story of Daydream Island Resort.

Breathe in the magic of the Whitsundays


Delightful views to wake up to

On an island as beautiful as Daydream, each of the 280 rooms and suites offers a delightful view from your Whitsundays accommodation to wake up to – across lush, tropical gardens or looking out to the impossibly blue waters of the Whitsundays.

Irresistible menus to celebrate life.

Tonic Bar

Spanning indoors from the Atrium out towards the Living Reef is Tonic Bar. As the Island’s specialty Gin Bar it’s great place to meet for a G&T before heading out to dinner or to stay and enjoy the atmosphere.


Where the views – and possibilities – are endless. Boasting an Asian inspired menu that highlights the best of Queensland produce, a private Teppanyaki Suite, and expansive views of the Whitsunday Islands.


This modern buffet restaurant brings fresh local produce to you daily. Located just off the main lobby in the Atrium, Graze is open for breakfast and dinner.
